The new addition of a Centre of Excellence in Cyber-Physical Systems for Aerospace will equip UTRC Ireland to lead cutting-edge advancements in aircraft systems.
UTRC, which has won multiple R&D 100 awards for innovation excellence, is often recognized by industry leaders for its game-changing technologies.
Once a bona fide interest has been expressed in a particular technology and a (or several) licensee(s) identified, UTRC and the inventor(s) will work with outside patent counsel to draft a U.
When UTRC can successfully transfer one of the technologies in its portfolio to a company via a license, it has gone a long way towards meeting its primary objective of supporting the research programs of the university.
Although the UTRC Bragg grating system has not yet been field-tested by a utility, its likely configuration in a power plant is as follows: A small diaphragm within a pipe reacts to the changes in pressure, squeezing the optica fiber grating mounted outside the pipe.
UTRC scientists used the same germania-doped silica glass that is standard for optic fibers, but they preanneal the fibers so they can survive temperatures up to 1200 [degrees] F in laboratory demonstrations.
would collaborate with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to introduce and deploy simulation tools that predict the material microstructure during the additive manufacturing process.
